Is a merchant offering you rights to accommodations (or any other form of exchange instrument to gain access to such accommodations) for which you commit to pay, year after year, until the contract expires? These types of contracts are often referred to as “timeshares” or “timeshare accommodation” contracts.


The merchant must give you a written contract. The page on the contents of a timeshare accommodation contract provides all the details.

Cancellation deadline

Once the contract has been entered into, you have 10 days to cancel. In certain cases, this deadline can be extended to one year. Refer to the page on cancelling a timeshare accommodation contract to find out more.
